Magby (ブビィ) is the 152nd Pokémon in the Johto Pokédex. It is a Fire-Type, and is known as the Live Coal Pokémon.

Magby uses the Flame Body Ability, an Ability that has a 30% chance of afflicting an opponent with a Burn if that opponent uses an attack that requires physical contact. A second Ability is available to Magby from the Dream World, the Vital Spirit Ability. This Ability gives it an immunity to the Sleep Status Condition.

Magby gain the opportunity to evolve into Magmar starting at Level 30, and starting in Generation IV, it can evolve a second time into Magmortar if it is traded while holding a Magmarizer.

Magby is in the Undiscovered Egg Group, but a Magby Egg can be bred if a Magmar or Magmortar breeds, an Egg that takes approximately 6,400 Steps to hatch. It takes Magby One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.
